Pituitary blood test
« on: February 15, 2018, 12:40:25 PM »
Did anyone had a blood test for the pituitary gland?
The hormones that can be tested via a simple blood test include: cortisol, thyroid, prolactin, testosterone and growth hormone.
I remember that my thyroid was a little bit low. Also testosterone was low. I can’t remember that I tested the other hormones.
POIS since 2000. Very bad since 2008. I knew that I have POIS since June 2010. Desensitization since March 2011. I stopped with desens in July 2016. I have 50% less POIS. And only 1 day of POIS. Purified CBD works for me, but I am allergic for CBD.

Next week I will have a blood test for liver and kindey function because I use a lot of antiobiotics for my prostititis. About 2 weeks I have an appointment with my doctor and I will ask him for a Pituitary blood test.

Cortisol, thyroid, DHEAS  and Tryptase were all normal. Only testosterone was a bit low (9,6; should be 10-30). But I did the blood test at 3pm. Testosterone is higher in the morning. And it’s better to have an early bloodtest.

Also testosterone was low.

Low testosterone seems like a common result in many POISers.

Thanks, Nas. I didn’t know that.
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business
